so that happened.

I had the mother of all migraines yesterday.  I woke up with it, which is worse than if I get a migraine when I'm awake, not sure why, but that's just how my brain rolls.  I couldn't sit up, couldn't open my eyes, couldn't do anything that would facilitate getting drugs in my bloodstream.  Fortunately, Miss O came into my bedroom when she woke up, and gladly fetched me a glass of water and my drugs.  The f!or!nal wasn't as effective as normal, but it took enough of the edge off that I could go downstairs and clean up the three broken eggs and one shattered glass from my kitchen floor.

Because nothing says THROW MAMA A BONE, HERE, PEOPLE, like dropping eggs on the floor.

It was just a day.  

I had an appointment to meet with my doctor to discuss how I've been having non-stop brain pain for almost 20 days.  Because really?  That's a bit much.  Except when you take a full-on dose of the happy pills, and then another full-on dose four hours later because the first dose didn't actually work, you have WAY TOO MUCH narcotic-ish stuff in your blood to operate a motor vehicle.  And also, you're probably not real good with conducting a conversation, either, so what's the point.  

They can see me next Friday.  As in TEN DAYS FROM TODAY.  By that time, I'll have had a headache for a full month, and have been alone with my children about 93% of that time.  Not that the two are related.  Maybe they are.  I think the children are more of an exacerbator than a cause, if you want my professional opinion.


In other news, it's still cold and rainy in my neck of the woods.  So much so, that I'm seriously considering breaking the neck of my woods and finding another a) neck or b) woods.


Exacerbator sounds dirty.


  1. That's horrible. So sorry that you are going through this. My pain only and always last just three days. I don't know what I would do if was daily and never ending.
    Can you call back and request that they see you right away?
    Take care. m.

  2. I hope you'll feel better soon, that's really terrible to be in pain for so long :/
    three broken eggs - yayks :P roommate once spilled 6 eggs - ready for a giant omelet on our kitchen floor - that was one really big mess - and I had to clean it because she was just standing there and looking at me with the "what-do-I -do-now?" expression :D

    well, get better soon :)

  3. I wish I lived closer and could come get the shorties for you....bring you a pie or something. Exacerbater is just an awesome word. As is exacerbated. The pain of your headache is exacerbated by your short people. It brings up visions of King Arthur pulling a sword from a stone and killing your headache with it. Or something. I'm not making sense. It's just that excalibur sounds a lot like exacerbate and I'm sure there's some sort of latin connection. Or possibly greek - but doesn't it sound more Latin? I don't know what I'm basing that on, by the way...that something sounds more Latin than Greek. Although words with a "ph" in them are Greek. Like philosophy. How's your headache? I'm not even taking narcotics, by the way. I'm just naturally entertaining!

  4. If I were you, I would march myself right in there and demand to be seen. 30 days of migraines before having it looked at? That's ridiculous!

  5. Yarg. I wish there was a magic anti-headache ray I could shine in your direction.

    For what its worth, "Exacerbator" could also be a movie title, like "Terminator". Or maybe it could also be some kind of kitchen utensil.

  6. I hope you find relief soon!


talk to me, people. because you know i get all giddy when you do.
